It could have been worse


The bridge on Firestone Blvd. that crosses over the Rio San Gabriel River was under reconstruction for over a year during 2014 and 2015. (See our posts here and here.) The construction was completed last year.

On my way to the Costco Warehouse in Norwalk yesterday, I passed over the bridge and noticed this damage. I came back to see just how bad it was. I don't know if you noticed, but the guard rail is damaged at both ends. I'm not sure how that happened. It will have to be fixed or replaced along with the now-mangled fence that prevents cars from plunging into the riverbed below.
